UKIP rode a ‘purple wave’ Friday, as the only real pro-Brexit party saw massive vote surge in Wales’ Newport West, that only gave a smile to one party leader, Gerard Batten MEP.
Voters vented their fury at a Tory Brexit Betrayal and Prime Minister May’s hated deal that has resulted in a the Brexit deadlock.
Neil Hamilton, a former Tory Minister turned Kipper, stunned critics by coming THIRD, with a staggering rise in UKIP’s vote share from 2% to a whopping 8.6%.
NEWPORT WEST: LAB HOLD
The mainstream Labour and Conservatives saw a big drop in vote share, with both parties seeing staggering drops.
Ruth Jones held on to the seat for Labour.
